Thanks to the staff at Blind Pony Hatchery for sending this video of spawning paddlefish and egg development.
After hatching, paddlefish fry will be reared in outdoor ponds until they are big enough to be released into public waters around the state.
The Missouri Department of Conservation artificially spawns paddlefish each spring and stocks in locations where the species cannot reproduce naturally due to habitat destruction.
